One of the more surprising free agent moves in recent memory will face his old team on this night, and, surprisingly, it’s the old club that carries a better record into this matchup. Neither of these teams enter this contest happy with their current form, however.
Monroe was brought in to help amplify the Bucks’ improvements after a strong showing in Jason Kidd’s first year with the team, but instead, the Bucks have gotten off to a slow start following last year’s surprise 41-41 record and playoff berth, despite adding Monroe and getting back Jabari Parker.
The Pistons started 5-1, but have dropped five of their last seven outings. The team’s starting five, which includes former Bucks forward Ersan Ilyasova, has been great for the team, but they’ve gotten little performance off the bench all year long.
The Pistons are getting 19.6 points per game from their bench – a number which ranks among the worst in the NBA. Detroit was outscored 51-15 by the Washington Wizards’ bench in a 97-95 home loss on Saturday, despite leading by as many as 11 points in the third quarter.
After ranking among the top defensive teams in basketball a year ago, the Bucks are allowing 105.2 points per game on 46.4 percent shooting, each of which ranks near the bottom of the NBA. Over the course of their current three-game losing streak, opponents are scoring 117.7 points on 53.4 percent shooting against Milwaukee.
In their last game, the Bucks allowed the Indiana Pacers to score 68 points on 63.4 percent shooting in the second half of a 123-86 loss on Saturday. Monroe, who signed a three-year, $50 million contract with the Bucks in July, is averaging 16.2 points and 9.9 rebounds.

Free NBA Prediction:
Andre Drummond has been the catalyst for the Pistons’ turnaround.
He’s been a monster on the board, pulling down a league-leading 17.8 rebounds per game, but was held short of a double-double for the first time all season when he was limited to eight points against the Wizards.

Getting home court advantage is going to be a major boost to the Bucks in this one, as both teams are looking to get their seasons back on the rails.
That Milwaukee defense figures to show up sooner rather than later.
